Lace platters in memory of a loved one… final pics

Finally, the completed platters for Lori in memory of her mom.  For those of you that follow my blogs, you will recall this project.  My dear friend and client lost her mom and offered me a few pieces of her mom’s lace.  I had an idea of creating platters for her using her moms lace to remember her by.  This project took me longer than planned.  Because these pieces would be sentimental, I wanted them to be special.  The lace was a little hard to work with, which created another challenge.  I was able to make it work and hope Lori will love the finished product. I really love the scalloped edges on the first platter.  I wanted to bring a contemporary hand painted feel to the old lace.  Somewhat reminiscent of hand painted platters in Italy.  I hope she loves them and thinks of her mom everytime she sees  them.  XO Tovari Designs   Everything Good and Beautiful…
